As I've probably said elsewhere - I've bought and used a 'clone' Tech2.

I'm no expert but willing to read codes.

Shropshire - over on Welsh border near to Montgomery (Welsh Wales).

Hi all, just got my clone today, awaiting injector seals, gasket kit ect... to fit everything back and plug this one in. I thought a pic would be great to visualize the device.
It's quite impressive as it doesn't look "that big" before you actually see it and hold it in your hands, now on my old fake marble table lol

Just remember (if it is like my clone) that the VIN section on the software is set up for North America only.
I found out the hard way when 'it' decided my 4JX1 Trooper was petrol-powered !!!

The Chinese supplier was unable to provide European spec VIN software.

Otherwise seems generally good.

I have no issue with my clone. It matches a uk tech2 identically.

Oh have no idea for now, haven't been able to use it yet, hope it'll work fine. Still waiting for some parts to come.
So is there any special instructions I should be aware of when it comes to plugging it into my 4JX1 then? Cheers

Nothing other than to say - on my clone the DC/DC converter caused issues so I followed the advice from another forum and changed the converter to a much more reliable one.

yes, the DC converter often goes in genuine ( and clone ) Tech 2's, it is a pretty common fault

we had to buy a REC10 for our genuine Tech 2 and it did the trick

Recom REC10 10W Isolated DC-DC Converter Through Hole, Vin 9 → 18 V dc, Vout 5V dc

https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/isolated-dc-dc-converters/7773443/

you need someone who is good at soldering, the cost of the part is £28.76 ex vat

beware scam artists on eebuygum charging £70 or £80 for the same thing !

I must see what I used.

It was a LOT less money than that RS item - and it works.

even better if there is a cheaper source for the DC to DC converter, we were in a hurry to get it done, and RS popped up first on the radar

Totally understand.

Now I'm sure I actually took my instructions from saabcentral.com  >>(https://www.saabcentral.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-567490.html)   rather than the poor translation on the earlier link I posted.

I used an  LM2596S from eebuygum. My 'electronics mate' did the soldering and supplied a necessary resistor.
The units can be incredibly cheap - currently as low as £1.95 inc post. [I paid £1.66 for mine a year ago]
Almost certainly Chinese but no evidence of 'cheese' yet on mine!
